Popular British sitcom about a middle-aged, suburban couple, William and Hester Field. Hester is suffering 'empty-nest syndrome' after their two children have grown-up so she keeps trying to find new hobbies and interests.
Better in its original form as a BBC radio series.
Television chiefs in Britain, desperate for new comedy ideas, seize on any successful radio series. When it first appeared, the idea of three generations of women under the same roof, and the sympathetic depiction of a gay man not in the first flush of youth were quite fresh. "After Henry" lost something in the transfer to TV, possibly because on TV it made fewer demands on the imagination. The cast, principally Joan Sanderson (qv) as Prunella Scales's mother and Benjamin Whitrow (qv) as the bookshop owner, were fresher, too.
